The tradition of service continues with Emory Cares
Student volunteers from 2023

Join the Emory community in supporting National Volunteer Week, April 21-27. Emory Cares offers in-person and virtual service projects that match your interests and comfort level.

Emory University’s mission to serve humanity translates to action through Emory Cares, an opportunity for students, faculty, staff and alumni to connect with each other, strengthen partnerships with civic and community organizations and improve communities nationwide. On the heels of celebrating 20 years of serving with heart during 2023, Emory Cares continues to bring the community together through service projects.

Emory Cares is celebrating National Volunteer Week, April 21-27, with in-person service projects and virtual activities across the country. If you would like to participate but cannot join a service project, you can still make a difference by volunteering on your own.

Some of this year’s projects include:

  • Cleaning and repairing books donated to Children Read, which provides free books to Atlanta children in need
  • Serving food-insecure neighbors in a restaurant-style experience
  • Collecting new and gently used children’s books and clothing for Chicagoland youth

See the complete list of opportunities for Emory Cares: National Volunteer Week 2024 and register online. If you want to be more involved, Emory Cares also welcomes project leaders and ideas for projects.
